Along with working on Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, an album that the Wu-Tang Clan announced would only see one copy be made, the New York hip hop group have also been working on another album, titled A Better Tomorrow, which is set for a July release, though RZA has put that into question.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, RZA spoke about the current situation with Raekwon, who right now is not taking part in the recording process and has openly criticized the music that has been released from the album thus far. “If we don’t come to terms [with Raekwon], I think in the next 30 days, than this will either be an album without Rakwon or an album that never sees the light of day,” explained RZA.
He went on to say that he did not want to make an album if all the living members of the group were not involved, but that he also didn’t want “the fans not to have this incredible music that we’ve been working on for the last year.”
You can watch the interview below, as well as listen to “Keep Watch,” the first single off A Better Tomorrow. When speaking of the song, Rakewon stated: “I hate it. I hate it. I don’t hate shit, but I hate that fucking record…”
